Good morning from the White House on this dreary and quiet St. Patrick’s Day in Washington. The coronavirus briefing is slated for 11:30 AM.
Once again, reporters and White House staff had their temperatures taken before passing through the Northwest gate today and we’re trying our best to adhere to social distancing recommendations by spacing out seats in the briefing room.
Please note an updated 11:30am timing for the Coronavirus Task Force press briefing.
